Montessori Christmas: Making Ornaments {day 12}

We’ve come to the end of 12 Days of Montessori Christmas. It’s been fun and I hope you’ve been inspired by a few ideas to do in your home.

Today I’m combining activities for infant/toddler and preschoolers with apple-cinnamon ornaments.

Making Cinnamon-Applesauce Ornaments


  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 4oz cinnamon


1. Mix ingredients together.

2. Roll out the dough and cut with cookie cutters.

3. Make a hole at the top of the ornament to string through after baking.

4. Bake at 200* for 2-1/2 hours.

Pretty simple and wonderful smelling! 🙂

    That looks like so much fun. I wish I had the energy…maybe over the next few days I’ll have a spurt of energy to make these with the boys. 🙂 I featured your post on the Montessori MOMents Facebook Page. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us.
